Pirate bomb is our beer Prairie Bomb! aged in rum casks. The flavor from the casks helps impart more vanilla and coconut flavors to the beer while helping to add more body and smoothness to the already explosive and expressive flavors of Bomb!

12 oz bottle @ Tapwerks. Aroma is slightly sweet, a little peppery. Black color, with minimal head. A huge spectrum of flavors, yet perfectly blended. Full bodied, ultra smooth mouthfeel. A delicious imperial stout!

Ritzn (375) - Bavaria, GERMANY - JUL 25, 2016
Deep black with almost no head. Aroma is really dark chocolate, coffee, some sweet cherries, pepper. Too much coffee for me. Taste is bittersweet, with much of everything, no sourness. Also remarkable is the chili-like-spicyness. Really well-rounded. Full body, heavy but not too much. Could have some more sweet chocolate but overall still beautiful.

(bottle) deep black colour with a small beige head. aroma of brown sugar, sugar icing and cherry juice, with big notes of milk chocolate, some ethanol and treacle. flavour is mostly brown sugar icing, espresso beans and ethanol, with heavy notes of caramel syrup, some light mango and a light alcoholic numbness in the finish. medium- to heavy-bodied with soft carbonation.

Bottle. Big burned chocolate, great chili, smoke, vanilla, rust. Black, low brown head. Old dark chocolate, vanilla, cigar tobacco, dusty oxidized malt. Hop bitterness, chili burn. Medium full, light sticky. Weird.

SinH4 (2530) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUL 25, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2016 Bottle from a trade with sneakychi, many thanks! Pitch black color with dark beige head. Aroma is chili, vanilla, black chocolate, cherry, coffee. Taste is vanilla, black chocolate, chili catch, espresso. Slightly hot finish, low carbonation. Full-bodied. Complex. A true bomb. The hotness is really well-balanced, it’s got the slight tickle.

Bulk_Carrier (3630) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - JUL 22, 2016
This was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a quickly dissipating white to off white foamy head that quickly dissipated. The aroma had the big boozy goodness of the rum up front. Delicate woody to chocolate underneath. Sly vanilla. Subtle cinnamon. The flavor wraps all of the flavors of the aroma together. Cinnamon and vanilla bounce together in the aftertaste and departs nicely with a semi-sweet/spicy finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a nice sipping quality about it. Spices hit nicely, not too harsh. Overall, loved it, but not exactly sure why I had it this time of the year. Would love to have it again but preferably in Winter.

Aroma is so good, ridiculous chocolate and vanilla, coconut, coffee, slight pepper, just ridiculously good. Appearance is black, light brown head, poured slightly thin. Taste is creamy chocolate, vanilla, coconut, rum, coffee, barrel, some booze, overall ridiculous. Mouthfeel is heavy body, very very light carbonation, chocolate vanilla coffee aftertaste with a slight heat. Overall, this one is so so good.

Easily the best rum BA beer I've had. Super syrup-y with a ton of rum character
